Now I don’t know if this is a big deal for other people but I just checked my stats after posting a weird limerick I just wrote here but I saw a crazy figure. This figure is so mind boggling that I had to share it with people. I had 101 views on my blog today.
Do you know how crazy it is to see that?! 101 views?! I am used to seeing anywhere between 15-30 on a good day! I have had more views lately but that I attribute to me commenting more and reading more blogs, but this is unprecedented! Thanks to the new stat viewer that WordPress introduced I can see that the views have come most likely from one person looking at a whole load of posts. They went through my archive, which makes me wonder if they have read everything I have posted online all in one go. Look.
Here is the part that is really freaking me out right now. The majority of these views from one single person looking at what I can assume to be my entire history of posts on my blog, is from the UK. For those who don’t know I am from England and this is freaking me out.
I opened up and showed someone my blog yesterday, a friend of mine who knew of its existence, but not what I wrote on here. I showed her some of the posts through the app on my phone. I wanted her to read some of it, but I did not want to give her the URL. Something was holding me back, something was stopping me from giving it to her. The same thing that stopped me giving it to a few other people. I did not want the questions and the anonymity provided by this blog made it feel safe to me. I intend to ask her in the morning if she has searched for my blog through clues and questions I answered to find it. She is a smart girl, I wouldn’t put it past her. Coincidentally someone searched for “My Mental Stream” and I know one person who does that, but the girl is smart and I am the top response if you Google those exact words. Also another friend (PR girl) knew about this blog, and I told her that I had written about her and she may have gone and read a great deal, but I don’t think it is her. Whoever it was who read this, please comment or contact me telling me who you are. This is kind of freaking me out a little. As said previously I will be sending a few messages in the morning.
Please, if you read this tell me who you are, this is going to massively play on my mind.
